Tell us something about yourself
I started my career as a Java Developer and moved into management about 7 years ago. I currently manage Developer Advocacy at Red Hat for their cloud based environments.
To stay technical, I started writing iOS applications when the iPhone first came. My applications have been featured on the app store etc. The first application that I wrote is called Signing Time.
I am passionate about movies and home theaters. Given this passion I am working on a mobile application that hooks into the follw.it website that I helped develop. The application is written in Titanium and is available in the App Store.
How did you get to use Titanium?
Having written applications with both native and cross-platform SDKs, I have found that I use Titanium 100% of the time for all mobile development over the last 1.5 years. Having a single code base written in a well known language is refreshing and reduced the time and cost of maintenance down the road.
How do you see the future of Titanium?
The future for Titanium is bright. I will continue to use it as the platform evolves. One thing that I still haven’t quiet wrapped my head around is Alloy and I find that I still use the classic model of Titanium Development.
Sell us your session at tiConf!
And what is it you look forward to yourself?
As I said previously, I have been procrastinating learning and using Alloy. I think the technology has matured and is now at a point where we should all be using it. I am excited to attend sessions related to Alloy to jump start my learning of the framework and learn practical use cases to apply the framework.
I also look forward to meeting up with anyone who uses the Titanium SDK to bounce ideas off. This will be my third Titanium conference and I learn something knew from my fellow developers each time.
